WIP #21

Last WIP post, I had 5 Quilts that I was working on.  I feel like I have just been making blocks for the past two weeks.  I can’t wait to get these things sewn into quilts!

 

1)  I have had no progress on my Homeward Bound Christmas Quilt.

 

2)  Skill Builder Sampler:  I have finished the three wonky blocks from this last month.  The Wonky Log Cabin, the Wonky Star, and the Wonky fan.  It was a lot of fun.  Here are those blocks.

 

 

3)  I have cut a log of Bees Knee’s Fabric (by Terrie Mangat) into triangles with a few solids.  I don’t want to show the blocks yet, but here’s a peek at the pile of triangles I have cut and sorted.

 

 

4) and 5) I have decided to use my Granny Squares for Teacher Quilts.  I’ll need 30 per quilt, and so far, I think I’ve made a total of 40.  I’m on may way!

 

 

6)  I have added a new quilt to the list, except this one will be in progress for a while.  I have taken up Candi’s Monthly Challenge (at Raccoon Creek Quilts), and started making blocks with my leaders and enders (instead of finishing a block and pulling the thread out to clip it, you sew two blocks of another quilt together, so as to not waste and maximize your time and thread).  I was skeptical at first if I would be able to do this challenge, mostly because I chain piece everything, and I hardly have leaders and enders.  Plus, I was not in the habit of utilizing what leaders and enders I had.  But, I have had bags of teeny tiny scraps, both white and color fabric, and I knew that I could never just sit down in one sitting and sew all of these little pieces together to make blocks.  So, I used this challenge to get this little quilt rolling.  It will be scrappy, and I am excited to have this one finally moving along.  Thanks for the challenge, Candi.

 

So, I started out with five, finished none, added one.  Six projects now.  Linking up with Lee at Freshly Pieced.

    You really are amazing! I can’t even fathom how you whip things out so quickly.

  3. Colleen says:

    My leaders and enders are really just the same little scrap of fabric that I sew on over and over… I can’t imagine using different pieces and making a quilt.

  4. Samantha says:

    Wow! So many projects- that’s amazing!

    The granny squares are looking fab!

  6. Love your stuff – all of it! The leaders and enders thing is interesting…
